Moving home is stressful. There is so much to consider. From selling your home and packing endless boxes, to finding the perfect new place; it is no wonder moving is considered to be one of the most stressful life events.
So, when I made my move to Leeds, I decided that this time would be different. Of course, I couldn’t avoid the tasks of packing and unpacking, but I decided to make my life so much easier and. It changed the game. Moving out of my old place and into my new one suddenly seemed manageable. Here are my top 3 reasons why hiring a storage unit in Leeds made my move easier.
- It made my old house easier to sell!
During a move, selling your house is often one of the first big stresses. But being able to stage my home to sell made this so much easier. While having family photos on the walls seemed homely to us, potential buyers were put off by all of our ‘stuff’. Hiring a storage unit really allowed us to clear out our clutter. The house suddenly seemed so much bigger, and buyers were able to envision themselves living in the space all while increasing its value. In fact, depersonalising your home can help to sell your home quickly.
- It allowed us time to create our dream space
Once we moved into our new home in Leeds, it was such a relief not to be surrounded by boxes. Having everything in a nearby storage unit allowed us to go back and forth, moving our items in at our own pace. I could spend time considering where I wanted things and it made re-decorating becomes a lot easier when you don’t have furniture in your way. It also allowed us time to reflect on what things we really wanted in our new home and which items would just take up space. This gave way to a massive clear out of things we no longer needed.
- You can ship your belongings long distances
When I moved to Leeds it was a big upheaval. Having hired a storage unit in Leeds meant I was able to ship my belongings to the unit ahead of time. This massively relieved the stress of moving day as all I had to worry about was myself.
It took a while to find the right storage company but once I did the benefits were unbelievable. They had:
– Helpful staff
– Forklifts available for bigger loads
– Delivery services
In having these three things, the storage unit had my belongings ready for me as I got the keys to my new home. It also meant getting belongings out of storage again was a smooth process!
